The Starter Wife

Hi gang, Daphne here!

Three years in the making, The Starter Wife is the much anticipated follow-up to 2018's Scared Fearless.  It's a collaboration between songwriter Yours Truly, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Kieran Ledwidge, and producer Duane Lundy. 

A departure from the road-weary adventurer in Scared Fearless, The Starter Wife swan dives into the maelstrom of divorce, shattering, reinvention, healing and hope.

It features a star-studded cast of musicians, and a Joni's Blue album vibe. The demos are done, the songs are road tested and heartbreakingly beautiful, and the studio has been booked to capture the final performance the last week of March.
